There are three key elements to success in the job market — your resume, your interview technique and your LinkedIn profile.
Most people recognize the importance of their resume and will commit to a few hours of preparation before an interview. But many people don’t make sure their LinkedIn profile is well-done. This significantly reduces the opportunities that come their way.
Most hiring managers will check out the LinkedIn profiles of short-listed candidates. Statistically:
- 95% of recruiters use LinkedIn to source candidates.
- 70% of employers actively research candidates’ social media profiles.
- 57% are less likely to contact applicants with no online presence.
To be successful in the job market, you must have a great LinkedIn profile that incorporates current best practices and appropriate marketing techniques. It must also dovetail with your resume.
